I saw a nature program a couple of years ago (not too scientific am I)
that showed two raptorial desert birds (I believe that they may have been
hawks) hunting hares together. The hare would hide in some sage brush
or some other thick but small cover, so one hawk would swoop down on the
brush trying to flush it out.
This would be the Harris's hawk, _Parabuteo unicinctus harrisi_, of Mexico
and the SW US.
